2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very light white beer and probably one of the weaker Belgian white beers. The taste is not very pronounced and is simply not convincing. This beer is not bad, but it does not even come to the knees of the original Hoegaarden.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cloudy golden when poured, head forms fast almost like a can of sprite. The taste is very light and acidic almost like a cross between a lemon soda and tonic water. Not for my own personal taste. Maybe in a small portion, but to difficult to sit through an entire .75 liter bottle.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2007 Bottled. A very hazy yellow coloured wit with very little head. The aroma is heavy on lemony notes and there is a fruity yeasty character. The taste is quite perfumed and floral with more lemony wheaty notes. The spices don’t real shine out and the mouthfeel is a bit thin.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 75 cl) One of the first Belgian whites to enter the market after the succesful relaunch of Hoegaarden by Pierre Celis. Paler than Hoegaarden, but with a smaller head. All the typical perfumy coriander and orange peel notes that make witbiers such a wonderful and quenching experience. This is one of the best. 040993

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m not a huge White fan, but this specimen is as good of a Blanche/Witte one will find in the low countries. Very fruity, somewhat spicy, not strong at all--but nicely refreshing.

Aroma: lightly sweet, fruity with a hint of pine needles. Apperance: cloudy pale yellow with a big fluffy head that settles down to larger bubbles and leaves some sheet lacing. Flavour: lightly grainy, hoppy, dry with a little clove. Palate: thin with lingering biscuity aftertaste.
